Childish Gambino and Rihanna’s Guava Island movie is coming to Amazon Prime this weekend

Last year, Donald Glover and Rihanna teamed up to shoot a “tropical thriller” together – but information about the film has been kept well under wraps.

Now, it looks like all will be revealed as soon as this weekend when Guava Island is set to debut on Amazon Prime.

Vanity Fair reports that the film is set to land on the streaming platform on 13th April, available to Prime subscribers shortly after Childish Gambino‘s headline Coachella set.

Guava Island dropped at Glover’s PHAROS Festival in Auckland late last year.

Cryptic adverts featuring only the date “April 13th” and an illustration for the mysterious film began appearing on Spotify only last week.

The film, credited in an early trailer to Glover’s alter ego as “A Childish Gambino Film,” was directed by his longtime collaborator Hiro Murai, who has worked with him on his FX show Atlanta as well as the videos ‘This Is America’ and ‘Sober.’

Shot mostly in Havana, Cuba, the film has been penned by Stephen Glover, Donald’s brother.

The flick’s description reads: “On Guava Island, a local musician is determined to throw a festival for everyone to enjoy.”
